• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I assume you're taking about a Whistler or Uniden database run?

If so, let me know which one so I can move your post to the appropriate forum.

Their website completely went down, everything was lost, they had to rebuild it, in fact they still are. I promise it won't be a "31 month time frame" and it's not "WIFEY'S CAUSATIONAL"

How is the RR database radio specific. I thought it covered GRE, Uniden & Whistler radios.
Sure looks like your original post is asking about the BRAND SPECIFIC Whistler Library update versus the NON-BRAND SPECIFIC RadioReference.com database. They're two separate entities. Use the search function on this site and you can likely find out how the Whistler Library update relates to the RadioReference.com database.

Here are several links to old posts to help explain LIBRARY updates, in this case GRE is mentioned. I imagine the Whistler Library update process is essentially identical:

Posts 66 & 67 in this thread.

Post 45 in this thread.

I'm certain there are others.

Ok. I see where you was coming from now. I was talking about the Saturday morning RR releases I've been getting all along.
While I believe your "Saturday morning RR releases" is referring to the Whistler Library updates, I'll go back to my original question: where does Whistler state that the Library will be updated every Saturday?

We are not touching base. RR has been releasing a Saturday update that I know of since I bought my first GRE PSR-800 which depended on this update to keep the frequencies up to date on the SD-Card for programming.

This is true.

This is not true.


I suggest you re-read the three posts (UPMAN & Dons) I mentioned earlier.
